In the 19th century, photographers accompanied archaeological expeditions and created images of the ruins of ancient civilizations to bring back to modern civilization. Today, Guillaume Martial has found strange architectural objects in our every day environment and gives them a similar treatment.
At first glance, there’s not much to a duck blind, a structure that hunters use to camouflage themselves while waiting for birds to fly overhead. They’re humble, often small structures made of simple materials—wood, paint, nails, netting, and bits of brush or grass—and are built with efficiency in mind more than comfort or architectural flair. But, as Wade Bourne wrote in Ducks Unlimited, “There’s a lot more in a duck blind than meets the eye. There’s hard work, ingenuity, and the hopes and dreams of the hunter or hunters who built it.”
That’s what Dave Jordano discovered in the winter of 2008 when he came across a bunch of duck blinds while traveling by the Mississippi River near Illinois’ border with Wisconsin. The Chicago-based photographer had been navigating the northern part of the state looking for “out-of-the-way places, things I found odd or eccentric or quirky, places that were indicative of rural life in a sort of odd way” for his series, “Prairieland.” Intrigued by the homemade structures, Jordano spent a single day hiking along the ice photographing the duck blinds.
When the iPhone 6 was announced this week, there was one person who received a bigger surprise than most: Espen Haagensen, the photographer behind the phone’s default wallpaper photograph.
Here’s why: Haagensen didn’t know his photo had been selected for this use until the rest of the world saw the photo during the phone’s official announcement.
Keep tabs on your home brew operation even if you’re not at home with the BeerBug. This WiFi-enabled sensor monitors the specific gravity, temperature, and alcohol content of your hooch, letting you view real-time data on a computer via a web browser or through dedicated apps for iOS and Android. Its built-in rechargeable battery lasts over 25 days and recharges over a standard Micro USB connection, so even if your fermenting time runs over, all you need is a common charger to stay informed until it’s done.
Guys, i’m so excited
I’m not sure how I feel about a larger iPhone. iPhone 6 has a 4.7-inch display. iPhone 6 Plus has a 5.5-inch display.
